If that zip contains sfz soundfont? Is there some file with name something.sfz? SFZ is text file which describes what to do with separate sample files. You can use qsampler to load sfz files. HTH.

EDIT Well, nothing seems to happen when I load that file with Fluidsynth.

Fluidsynth will only load sf2 soundfonts, not sfz.
